CEC receives the preliminary results of the parliamentary elections in the normal pace, deputy chairman of the Central Election Commission Andriy Mahera told journalists, ForUm correspondent reports.
In particular, he explained why CEC receives the information from one location earlier.
“There are certain features of Ukraine: south and east of the country is mostly industrial, and there are fewer polling stations, while in the west and center of the country there are a lot of small polling stations,” the official said.
In addition, according to Mahera, certain organizational aspects influence the speed of data transfer.
“We should take into account the organization of the vote counting process in the commissions and a possible influence on the part of political parties and candidates. All these points should be considered,” he said.
Deputy chairman of the Central Election Commission also assured that there were no serious violations during the voting.
“The question now is, how the vote counting will be held at the stations. This stage is also very important, as the process of voting. Then we will understand the whole picture, whether there were some violations or no,” Mahera summed up.

The parliamentary elections in Ukraine passed without serious violations, observers from the CIS mission state.

“The counting of votes is going openly and transparently. The violations were primarily technical and could not influence the results of these elections,” head of the mission Vladimir Harkun told a press conference in Kyiv.

As a negative point, the observers noted the frequent changes of members of the district committees, which caused some difficulties in their work.

According to the mission, the electoral commission provided the preparatory stage of the election campaign.
